The first officially released recording of this song from the 1990 Highlights album. The lyrics were changed somewhat by the time of the Alley Theatre Premiere, which contained the version as it is known today.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

This is the moment,
This is the day,
This is the moment when I know I'm on my way.
Every endeavour,
I have made ever,
Is coming into play,
Is here and now today.

This is the moment,
This is the time,
When the momentum
And the moment are in rhyme!
Give me this moment
This momentous moment.
I'll gather up my past
And make some sense at last!

This is the moment.
When all I've done,
All of the dreaming,
Scheming and screaming,
Becomes one!
This is the day,
Just see it shine,
When all I've lived for,
Becomes mine!

This is the moment,
This is the hour,
When I can open up tomorrow
Like a flower,

And put my hand to,
Everything I planned to,
Fulfil my grand design,
See all my stars align!

This is the moment,
My final test!
Destiny beckoned,
I never reckoned,
Second best!
I won't look down,
I must not fall,
This is the moment,
The sweetest moment of them all!

This is the moment,
Damn all the odds,
This day or never,
I'll sit forever with the gods!
When I look back,
I will recall,
Moment for moment,
This was the moment,
The greatest moment of them all!
